Bukit Kutu – A weekend trek

My second trek this year was a memorable trek up Bukit Kutu hill (Treacher’s Hill) in Selangor.   This hike is not an easy one and is not meant for beginners.  The 7 – 8 hour trek takes about 4 hrs uphill and 3 hours downhill.  Bukit Kutu is 1080m and the trail is covered with thick bamboo vegetation.

We started out from Rawang after stopping for breakfast after a briefing with our leader.  On this trek you come across 2 big rocks, a chimney  and a sanatorium.  There are different versions of stories on the sanatorium/hospital here.  Some say there it may be meant for recuperation of the injured rather than a hospital for treating the hill.

Once at the summit you can get a panoramic view of the clouds, valley and mountain peaks. I joined the SG Trekking group and we were 40 people of diverse backgrounds.  This made the trip even more enjoyable as there was a lot of sharing and networking. After the long trek uphill, the 360deg view from the summit was the best reward.

Coming downhill is not easy as your legs are wobbly after the long climb.  For an outdoor experience and a day away from city life, this trek offers a good sweat and you will feel recharged and rejuvenated for the week ahead.

On our return we enjoyed a dip in the stream below the waterfall.
